    Can't I view thumbnails in Vista?

    I can only view icons, list, details and tiles. Why can't I see thumbnails
    like in previous versions?

    In Windows Explorer, click on "Organize" - "Folder and Search Options" -
    "View" tab
    uncheck "[ ] Always show icons, never thumbnails"
    Apply
    OK

    Hi Robert

    Go to the Start Menu - Control Panel - Folder Options - View - Files and Folders - Uncheck 'Always show icons, never thumbnails'

    Let us know if that rectifies your problem.

    Kind regards

    Neil

    Thanks, 100 times over I confirmed the 'Always show icons, never thumbnails' was not selected and still could not view thumbnails. Finally surrendered and set Photo Gallery view all the defaults and now I've got my thumbnails back for Corel Drw & Corel Paint.

    This works for everything except psd C4 icons - Any idea how I can get them to show? They used to show, and suddenly stopped!

    Sorry - I really just want to know from anybody on the formus who uses CS4 how they get the psd icons to show as thumbnails in Windows Photo Gallery. This worked find with CS2, but although Windows shows all the file types, including raw, it will no longer show Photoshop psd. The thumbnails now have a IrfanView logo, and will only open in IrfanView, Adobe, or Bridge.
